I made a homemade snuff using a 5-pack of Backwoods Cigars (Aromatics) !
I threw the hole 5 backwoods in (leaf and guts).
It is amazing, has a beautiful aroma like Backwoods!
First days the snuff had a very classic Backwood aroma in the nose.
Also, I have to say that it is pretty plain snuff, I was sniffing it one day and then met a friend who dont knows about snuff and she told me that I'm stinking cigarette smell. I told her that I was in a bar and that my clothes smell like cigarettes cause everyone was smoking. lol
Anyways, pretty awesome homemade snuff.
Now, after some weeks in the jar it changed! Now it has a very clear and strong BISCUIT aroma! In the nose it has a biscuit and plain tobacco aroma! It's good!
About the nicotine level, it started with a very good nicotine hit and now I think it is weak in the nicotine department. Maybe it lost some nicotine as I was experimenting with it's moisture as I tried to hydrated it a few time. I choose a moisture like a typical Toque for this one (a little moist but clearly on the dry side).
Now I'm thinking of making a snuff with only the backwoods wrapper leaf.
What are your opinions on homemade snuff made from Backwoods?
